The UCLA Health Lesbian, Bisexual, and Queer (LBQ+) Women’s Health Program addresses the unique health care needs of sexual and gender diverse women through multidisciplinary clinical care, community engagement, medical education, and ongoing quality improvement projects
The UCLA Health Lesbian, Bisexual, and Queer (LBQ+) Women’s Health Program is offered in partnership with the Iris Cantor - UCLA Women's Health Center and the Los Angeles County Lesbian, Bisexual & Queer Women's Health Collaborative (LBQWHC).
